Prilep seen from the Towers of Marko


Markovi Kuli or Markos Towers is a place high on a hill overlooking the town of Prilep.

There you find the ruins of the fortress towers of King Marko, the Macedonian king, who died in 1395 fighting the Turks.
Archaeological findings show that parts of the fortress date back to the Iron Age, the 3rd and 4th centuries BC and later periods during the Ottoman Empire. However, most of what remains to be seen today is from medieval times.

The place is mostly in ruins but you do have a magnificent view over Prilep, especially at the end of the afternoon.
The hill is about 120 to 180 m high and surrounded by steep slopes covered with granite stones.
Its not really a difficult climb but take enough time, especially for the return when you go at the end of the day because theres of course no lighting in this area.
